Miles Mosley is an upright bassist, vocalist, producer, composer and arranger.
As a teen, Mosley won the Los Angeles Music Center’s Spotlight Award; was selected to play bass for the 1996 Grammy All-American High School Jazz Band & Choir; and was acclaimed as a “technical virtuoso” by Los Angeles Times jazz critic, Don Heckman. He received his classical training at the Colburn School of Music in Los Angeles, had numerous years of study with jazz bass legends John Clayton, Ray Brown, and Al McKibbon, and received his undergraduate degree in music at UCLA. Since then Mosley has greatly expanded his repertoire, mastering the bass and a vast array of instruments, deftly blending Jazz with Rock, Pop, Funk, and R&B.

In February 2013, we set up the first ever ‘Royer Labs – Mojave Audio Pop Up Studio’ at Folk Alliance International 2013 in Toronto. With the help of our friends at HHB Canada, we set up a studio in a hotel room and recorded 45 sessions in three days!
The folks at Auralex sent us a couple of boxes of their fine products to help with the room acoustics. For front end we used various Universal Audio products: LA-610, 4-710 and the new Apollo (great box!).
Engineers: Dave Misener, Brian Hogue, Shahab Mobasher, Paul Talbott and Dusty Wakeman.
Special thanks to Dave Dysart (HHB Canada), the great staff at Folk Alliance and, most of all, all the great artists!
